There have been five black ballerinas that have made a noticeable mark in
the world of ballet. Five that have fought to have the world see their talent
rather than the color of their skin. Each has graced the stage as soloist
and/or principal dancer. Precious Blue Johnson is set to become one of them.

Precious Blue Johnson, young, country and naive, from Lutts County, Georgia,
is traveling to the energizing city of New York to search for her birth father and
perhaps make history by becoming the first black ballerina.

Her simple mocha skin and thick lips will put her in the center of a movement,
expose secrets and unlock the past as she steps onto the stage as the Blue
Butterfly. She will be guided by the vivacious and wise Ms. Ann and fall in
love with the alluring Ray Silvers.

Ray brings the whole package. Enchanting eyes, a bright future as a doctor,
and a willingness to love completely. To Precious, he is perfect. Except
Ray’s package includes his deadly past. Will their love survive the one person
who could end it all—his drug-addicted mother?
“Author Marian L. Thomas has
woven a page turner that will
have you wanting more. In her
book, Blue Butterfly, the author
does a fantastic job developing
each character and taking the
reader on a ride of unexpected

-Paulette Harper, Award winning author of Living Separate Lives

Marian L. Thomas is a dynamic storyteller with four engaging and dramatic novels to her credit.
Her books have been seen on national television stations and featured in print magazines and
newspapers. She has also been a guest on many broadcast and  online radio stations. Her titles,
My Father’s Colors and Strings of Color both received the USA Best Book Finalist Award.

What makes her books unique? Mrs. Thomas is a pioneer for contemporary clean fiction
for women. She refuses to lace her work with explicit sexual themes or profanity. Her books are
rich with ever-intriguing themes of race, family strife, love, courage, friendship and forgiveness.
And yet her tales, which seem to pre-stage current tabloid headlines, are spelled out in ways that
suit the delicate moral tastes of Christian Fiction readers.

Ms. Thomas resides in a suburb of Georgia with her husband, family and dear friends.
